Bottle share by Paul, nice oak barrel scents with lots of dark fruit. Flavor is very bourbon forward, with great chocolate flavors and the dark fruit blended with chocolate, just an outstanding finish and beer.

2011 Bottle. Pour is black with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor on this is very sweet, borderline cloying. Notes of raisins, oak, brown sugar, vanilla, brownies, chocolate, and roasted malts. Some slight bourbon in the finish, but it is mostly overpowered by the sugary characteristics.

Hard not to love everything about this beer. Seriously, this brewery has mastered the art of whiskey-aged stouts. Aroma and taste both have tons of cherry cordial, toffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. Thick and sweet and hard to get out of your mouth. I want to live next door to this brewery!

Bottle at Home from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: coffee domination, caramel and bourbon barrel aged. Really amazing complexity. Need to taste it!!!! Taste: as the same on nose, this beer is amazing. Good coffee taste and roasted malt. Caramel complexity and bourbon barrel aged complexity. Very amazing palate. This beer is a MUST to try. Aftertaste: good bitterness and very well equilibrium. Coffee caramel and bourbon barrel aged finish. One of the best I try !!!

Black. Good sized frothy creamy frothy medium brown head, fairly lasting with some lace. Aroma is roasty, chocolatey, a little ash, along with some soft subtle bourbon. Lighter full body. Creamy and ultra smooth. Flavor explodes! Roasty coffee. Dark chocolate. Ash. Extraordinarily smooth bourbon. Some alcohol warmth, but no booze whatsoever. Phenomenal balance. Fantastic! Way exceeded my expectations.

65 cl bottle @ home (2012 vintage). Pours black with a tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, and coffee - with a bitter finish.

Elijah Craig version, sampled side by side with the Heaven Hill Rye version, both thanks to Dak! Dark brown pour with a creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, coffee, dark fruit and vanilla. Flavor is much the same. Roasty and delicious!
